Often the question is asked by the fellow customers..because there is no JASO recognition on JTX? while JTX can be used on motorcycles even with wet clutch.
Generally, the standards produced are according to the engineering suitability of the fluid according to the environment and the way of driving the vehicle. The question also arises, how the machinery produced by the European countries must follow Japanese standards while the environmental n climate in Europe is not equal to Japan Should be European according to the standards of Japan as well … according to their own standards .. And why the Japanese machinery can be used in Malaysia while our environmental n climate is not the same as Japan? … Well, here’s why JTX does not need a rating by JASO.
Modern motorcycles typically have the same oil lubricating engine and wet clutch. For this purpose most of the modified engine oil sprocket times are not good enough. To ensure that the correct oils used by motorcycle manufacturers usually require oil to meet one of the JASO standards and are described as below.
Motor oils that meet JASO T 903: 2006 standards can be classified into four grades:
JASO MA2 and
This classification is based on the JASO T 904: 2006 test of clutch firction system.
Accordingly, any brand of lubricant oil which is equivalent to the JASO rating standard must have at least one of the following levels of quality:
API = SG, SH, SJ, SL, SM
ILSAC = GF-1, GF-2, GF-3
ACEA = A1 / B1, A3 / B3, A3 / B4, A5 / B5, C2, C3
The following is a JTX 1000 specification that meets the specifications API, SAE, ACEA, MB and other specifications capable of meeting the needs and requirements of various types of vehicles available in Malaysia.
JTX 1000 GOLD
Meets or exceed the performance specification of API SN / CF, ACEA A3 / B4-10, MB p229.1, VW 501 01/505 00.
JTX 1000 RED
Meets or exceed the performance specification of API SL / CI-4, ACEA A2, A3, B3, B4, E3, E5, CUMMINS CES 20077/20078, Global DHD-1, VOLVO VDS-3
If JTX meets the requirements and the quality level as listed. There was no issue regarding quality JTX. So, it is up to you to give the best for your vehicle.
